Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise has a beautiful setting in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Banff National Park. 

Rooms at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

Of the many rooms at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, the junior suites are the perfect mixture of opulence and elegance. These spacious suites offer stunning mountain and lakeside views, and feature a large Jacuzzi to rest those aching muscles. For a little bit extra, opt for a seventh-floor Fairmont Gold Room - you’ll love the space, the warm, rich colours, the personalised service and the breathtaking views of the national park.

The two-bedroom suites provide a luxuriously spacious option for larger groups and feature classic, sleek furnishings in rooms which are separated by a communal parlour area. There are also two lavish bathrooms, with the master bathrooms including standalone bathtubs - perfect for a relaxing soak after long days out and about.

Food & Drink

From afternoon tea in the shadow of a glacier, to exquisite fine dining at the luxurious Fairview restaurant, you're spoilt for choice here. Spend your apres-ski sampling one of the Walliser Stube's European-style cocktails, or marvel at the eatery's rather impressive floor-to-ceiling wine library.

Stop over at the Lakeview Lounge for some delicious food alongside breathtaking views of Lake Louise, the Victoria Glacier and the surrounding snow-capped peaks or head to the Guide's Pantry deli for a selection of gourmet snacks and tasty pastries alongside freshly-brewed speciality coffees.


Exhausted after a day's adventures in the great outdoors? Head to the gorgeous spa for a relaxing foot massage and soothe the tension in your muscles with an array of wellness treatments that will leave you relaxed, revitalised and recharged. Visit the fitness centre for a well-needed pre-ski stretch and a range of classes or take a soothing dip in the turquoise waters of the indoor pool.

Activities at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

Enjoy the ever-changing landscapes all year round, and discover endless outdoor activities including downhill skiing and snowboarding, cross-country skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice skating and horse-drawn sleigh rides in the winter, and in summer, canoeing, horse riding, fishing, river rafting and navigating the extensive hiking trails by foot, bike or horse.
